JPMorgan SuperDay

Hello monkeys, I have a superday with JPMC AM/WM in two and a half weeks (Midwestern office). While this is not my first superday (I did one for Northwestern Mutual sophomore year before realizing how awful that firm is), but it is my first superday with a big bank for AM/WM.

I've talked to some friends who've gone through the process, and have a rough idea, but I'm going to be honest, I still feel in the dark about a lot of things.

I was told I can expect questions about the current state of the market and also how I'd deal with certain scenarios (such as how I'd go about constructing a portfolio). However, is there anything else I should expect? Any behavioral questions? Which technicals should I brush up on?

Also dumb question: Currently, I only have a black suit. I don't want to wear it and get dinged, so I'm thinking of renting a navy suit before the interview (I will buy my own navy suit in December). Should I really be worried about that as well?

Basically, I'm a rookie at this, and I'm feeling kind of lost.

JPM Superday November (Originally Posted: 11/07/2016)

I attended a JP Morgan IBD superday on Friday (11/4) and haven't heard anything yet. Has anyone else heard back? Also, I was wondering what other peoples experiences have been hearing back from JPM? I know the norm for an IBD offer is the day of, is this true for JPM as well? If I don't hear back by tonight am I most likely wait listed? Thanks for the help!

JP Morgan 2018 QR SA SuperDay (Originally Posted: 02/12/2018)

Has anyone heard back from JPMC from the QR SA Superday last Friday in NYC? Though we were told that the decisions would be given out within 2 weeks, I guess they make decisions shortly after the interviews.

JPM Fresh/Soph Superday (Originally Posted: 02/10/2012)

I have a superday coming up for JPM's Freshman and Sophomore SA program.

Has anyone been to one of these before? Other BB fresh/soph superday experience will help as well.

Does anyone know what kind of questions I should expect? More tech or fit?

Also, I have to rank groups and locations. I live in NY and want to do IB but if there would be a group/location combo that would be less competitive, I'd like to know.

Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

JP Morgan NYC Equity Research SA superday (Originally Posted: 02/06/2013)

Is there anyone who has interviewed with JP Morgan's Equity Research for SA position in the past. Please share your experience and what kind of questions did the VPs and MD asked. I would really appreciate any input.

Just curious, for those who attended the program, what type of questions were asked? All behavioral or technical?

I was there for S&T and I haven't heard anything. I had questions which were a lot more technical than what I was expecting - I'm at a liberal arts school and my alumni contacts had told me to prepare stuff about the markets in general, but I had some very technical questions (I told some of them to friends who've interned at top banks and they were really surprised...). As a consequence, I don't think I got it, but I would highly recommend that anyone from a liberal arts background prepares as much as possible on the technical side, especially if not applying through OCR.

Not IBD but I was there on the same day for S&T and haven't heard anything yet. Neither did my friend who interviewed for ER.

Not sure how helpful this is because I still haven't heard from S&T yet. But apparently people have been getting offers and also getting rejection calls in all divisions so no news at this stage isn't necessarily a bad thing!

They're giving people with offers until February to decide, so if you're waitlisted, it could be a fairly long wait.

Thanks for all your replies! Hmm yeah hr emailed me saying they would hopefully be in touch with me by the end of this week...so im not sure then if im waitlisted or not...

Hope this helps you somewhat but I got a call this morning! They told me they can't extend me an offer through the winning women program but I will be put through general recruiting process with the rest of candidates again in January. As far as rejections go though, can't get much better than this since it's not a 100% no so I'm staying positive. Hopefully you get the offer at the end of this week though! :)

Anyone hear back from JP Morgan Real Assets Group super day? (Originally Posted: 02/28/2014)

I went to the super day interviews on NY early last week but haven't heard back and it's been a little over a week. Should I assume that I'm on the waitlist or a reject email is pending? Does it take this long for them to get back to you? I've had a friend who heard back after two months last year.

I'd really appreciate it if anyone who heard back could leave a comment. It would definitely help me plan accordingly for this summer. I'm from a non-target if that helps clear things up.

Thanks!

Hey, I guess we are on the same boat I also had an interview with them 2 weeks ago and haven't yet heard back. Let me know if you hear anything. I will keep you posted if I hear anything.
